"Mojo states "it's breathtakingly apparent that David Bowie isn't so much back on the horse as riding bareback towards a cliff edge." Uncut praises its "nuanced approach," while Q says it entices "you to follow Bowie further down this freshly rediscovered, individualistic path where sonic surprises lurk around every corner." Rolling Stone declares it "a ricochet of textural eccentricity and pictorial-shrapnel writing." This is a must-hear recording.
Columbia's 180-gram LP is housed in a special die-cut cover art gatefold jacket and includes a 16-page color booklet with custom varnish. The die-cut cover allows you to "look through" and see the vinyl inside. Most importantly, the sonic quality meets the level of Bowie's boundary-pushing artistry."
